The King's Dragon
by W.M. Fawkes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Listened to the audiobook and wow, mind blown. It's like a Game of Thrones where one's sexuality doesn't matter but the machinations of dragons and deranged kings do.
Lord Tristram Radcliffe, the cousin of the new king, Reynold, has a secret. He's half dragon in a country that despises dragons. He knows if his secret is ever found out he will be banished - or worse. But the new king, his cousin, is becoming more and more unhinged and Tristram will do everything in his power to protect the king's son and the king's sister - but at what cost?
Bet Kyston is the King's shadow - Reynold's most trusted assassin. He too has a secret - a secret attraction to Tristram. A secret he keeps close to his vest because he's the king's dirty not-so-secret secret and Tristram is all that is good and noble and golden.
There are power plays for the throne, and another dragon in the throne room vying for the king's attention. But secrets have a way of coming out, and madness knows no friend or family member. Lines are drawn - what way will Bet Kyston go - loyalty to the king he owes everything too, despite knowing the king is mad, or will he choose a truly noble man with a noble cause?
The audible book by Lessa Lamb and Greg Boudreaux was fantastically narrated and kept me completely captivated. Can't wait for their reading of book 2! View all my reviews
